from the 2008 clearly dulled, as he missed repeated opportunities to challenge mr. romney on his falsehoods and turnabouts. there are still two more presidential debates. and mr. obama has the facts on his side to expose the hollowness of his opponent, but first he has to decide to use them aggressively. i think a lot of people felt that way. >> jon meacham, you'd have to go back to the 2004 bush debate. first bush debate to find a clear winner like we had last night. when you have even liberal publications, liberal editorial pages saying that barack obama didn't show up, and mitt romney won it going away. >> i think that's right. and i think -- it's interesting that incumbent presidents, as we've been talking about, you know, are not accustomed to this forum. it's been a long time since he's been challenged like that. i remember president bush, george w. bush, was quoted -- used to be quoted as saying, you know, people will be out in the oval office waiting room and they'll say i'm going to go in and tell the president, great texas phrase, what all, and they get in and they say

is it that mr. romney proposes doing? that's what's -- >> the question to you, general, with all respect. >> that's okay. >> what's the president of the united states doing? romney wants to be president but the president is the president. >> president's working with allies in the region to try to provide hue human taryn assistance. working with groups to try to form a legitimate and recommendsed political opposition. working to -- with others to try to hold down the delivery of heavy weapons to the region. working with other allies that are providing some assistance and some information on who the syrian resistance leaders are so it's humanitarian, political, diplomatic. it's everything we can do short of using military force. i'm sure the military options have been looked at. an air campaign has been looked at. taking out the ground defense. both of those are major military operations. they involve war. they don't have -- they don't have strong support from nato allies. it's more go it alone for the united states. >> all right. >> an they don't seem to be that effective in addressing th

. >> mr. president? >> first of all, i think governor romney is going to have a first day. because he's also going to repeal obama care which will not be very popular with democrats as you're sitting down with them. but, look, my philosophy has been i will take ideas from anybody, democrat or republican as long as they're advancing the cause of making middle class families stronger and giving ladders of opportunity to the middle class. that's how we cut taxes from middle class families and small businesses. that's how we cut a trillion dollars of spenting that wasn't advancing that cause. that's how we signed three trade deals into law that are helping us to double our exports and sell more american products around the world. that's how we repeal don't ask, don't tell. that's how we ended the war in iraq and that's how we're going to wind down the war in afghanistan. that's how we went after al qaeda and bin laden. so we've seen progress even under republican control of the house of representatives. but ultimately part of being principled, part of being a leader is being able to descr

in many areas as far as foreign affairs, which i don't know much about. but i think mr. romney has the ability to lead a company. when i was an heiress, there's the difference between a manager and a head nurse and a staff nurse. therefore, he has the ability to lead companies. but i think it takes a special person to lead the country. -- i was a nurse. host: we have a poll on our facebook page asking whether you plan to what the presidential debates tomorrow night. joe in atlanta, republican line. caller: how are you? yes, i am watching the debate. i want romney to ask a question of president obama about why mr. obama sent them to beat a black man in south st. louis in 2009 , a cancereth survivor. he was selling trinkets at the town hall meeting to pay his bills. you can find it on line, the beating of a black man at the st. louis town hall meeting. claire mccaskill tried to cover it up along with others and they got money from the unions if they would get a non-conviction for pulling him out of the line and calling him the n word and starting to be him up. that's a hate crime and

, or reagan, did they do as bad a performance as president obama did? >> mr. gibbs portrayed romney as a chameleon, who takes on different positions when he goes into the debate. has any other challenger thrown that type of a curve ball? >> well, they used to call franklin roosevelt a chameleon, because he would change colors, his other name was the juggler, so politics, that name is pretty common. but barack obama doesn't buy into that style. he tries to always be kind of the ernest candidate. and mitt romney is a candidate of convenience. so it is an unusual pairing of these two. the president is going to have to call the chameleon out, if you like, in the next debate. >> so you gave us an example of a couple of first-time debates. can you suggest that history will judge this debate in total with the other ones? i mean, we talk about things that are bad with the first one, that is usually the things that stand out the most, but more about that? >> i teach presidential studies for a living and i get confused. we tend to group all of the debates together. and at best we have an impr
